Syllabus
Prerequisites: Chemistry, physics and mathematics courses of the first and second year
Target skills and knowledge: The main object of the course is to provide the students with the basics of the relationship between structure and properties of the different classes of materials.
Examination methods: Written
Assessment criteria: The assessment will be based on the student's understanding of the arguments, on the acquisition of concepts and methodologies proposed and the ability to apply them in a conscious and autonomous.
Course unit contents: Structure of the materials: bonds, crystalline and amorphous structure, defects in the crystals.
Thermodynamics of solid state materials: phase diagrams, surface energy.
Phase transformations and diffusion. Glass transition.
Properties of materials: mechanical, thermal, corrosion, optical.
Different classes of materials and their processes.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures.

Additional Information for students of the Bachelor of Materials Science
The course of Materials Science is divided into two modules. The module B is borrowed from the course of Fundamentals of Materials Science, and the module A is given by Prof. C. Marega. The program of module A is the following:
Introduction to Polymer Science. Definitions and terms relating to polymers. Classification of polymers. General information on solutions and fractionation. Methods for determination of average molecular weights: osmometry, light scattering, viscometry, GPC. Spectroscopic techniques, UV-Visible, IR, NMR. Amorphous polymers. Polymers and crystallinity. Thermal analysis (DSC, TGA). Wide and small angle X-ray diffraction. Optical and electron microscopy. Elements of linear viscoelasticity. Mechanical properties and their measurement. Rheology and rheometry.
The exam will be oral.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Slides of the course will be available from the moodle platform of DII.

For students of the Bachelor of Materials Science the reference books for the Module A are:
Principles of Polimerization, G.Odian, Wiley-Interscience
Fondamenti di scienza dei polimeri, AIM-Pacini editore (1998)
Fundamental of Polymer Science: an Introductory Text, P: Painter, M.M.Coleman, CRS Press.
